Shocked to discover that the inebriated rake who kissed her and then mentioned blackmail is none other than Leander Campbell, her best friend's adored bastard stepbrother, Lady Eleanor Acton sets out to foil his nefarious schemes and ends up in love with him instead. This well-crafted, compelling story of two people caught in an apparently unsolvable dilemma offers charming dialog, a good sense of the period, an intelligent heroine, a hero whose sense of honor almost does him in, and a tricky mystery. Ewing has hit her stride with this one. She has written two earlier Regencies featuring Wellington's intelligence officers as heroes (the first, Scandal's Reward, Zebra, 1994, won the Colorado Romance Writers 1995 Award of Excellence for Best Regency). Ewing lives in Montrose, Colorado.
